Every Wednesday evening and First Friday, admission is free at the Phoenix Art Museum. Take advantage of it this week and see From New York to New Mexico, Masterworks of American Modernism. See O’Keeffe, Calder, and more as American artists differentiate themselves from the French modernist movement. General admission is free, admission to From New York to New Mexico is $8, and the exhibition runs until September 7.
The Hell City Tattoo Festival happens this weekend, August 28 through 30, at the Biltmore Resort. Was it always held there? Because I’m struggling with the motocross-plus-haunted house vibe arrayed at the resort. In a positive way, mind you. Should be a trippy time.
Go see Papa and the ghouls this Friday, August 21, at 7 pm at the Zia Records on 19th Ave. and Camelback to celebrate the release of Ghost’s new album, Meliora. They’ll have it on vinyl and the band will be available for signing after the performance. Plus, it’s surprisingly fun to watch bands at that Zia.
